Test Management: ISTQB Advanced
Course Outline
General Description

What can tests tell you about the quality of your software? And how much testing do you need? This course will introduce you to various organizational aspects of software test. You will learn how to design your testing process effectively and efficiently and how to predict your efforts in time and cost. You will understand different approaches to testing and find ways to choose from a variety of different test scenarios.

In a hands-on approach you will practice planning, controlling and monitoring

software tests within your project (operative test management). We\u2019ll examine how to introduce, anchor and continually improve software tests as an effective, established process within your company (strategic test management).

We\u2019ll discuss various documents related to test planning (IEEE Std. 829-1998), the
fundamental concepts of fault management (IEEE Std. 1044-1993), risk management and
test management, and their interrelationships. The participants learn what quality
information and fault statistics can be gained through the testing process, and how this
objective test data can be used to make well-founded product-release decisions.

This section also includes an overview of the various organizational designs seen in
software testing practice. Participants are helped to choose the optimum organizational
design for their own situation. A \u201ctesting center\u201d case study shows the factors to be
considered in the successful organization of software tests.

When the test process has been set up and is running, the next stage is test process

improvement. Adapting and optimizing the various processes is a constant challenge for the test manager. Participants learn various models of process improvement and discover how the models can be applied. The main focus is placed on adapted models for improving the test process.

As a practical exercise, participants go through the steps of applying a process
improvement model.
The seminar is rounded off with an examination of the role of the tester within the
company \u2013 the unusual situation of the tester as well as the specialist knowledge and
social skills they will need.
This seminar is the ideal preparation for the Test Manager examination \u2013 part of the

\u201cISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level\u201d certification. The course sticks closely to the subject matter behind the test standard and deepens understanding with case studies and exercises. It is possible to take the examination directly at the end of the seminar.
